Join us at the Quarter Auction to benefit Salute to the Brave Hero Project.

Have you ever heard of a Quarter Auction?
No problem, we’ll show you how to play. Bring friends and some rolls of quarters and join us for a fun day out with chances to win prizes for not a lot of money! Auction starts at 6:30
Upon arrival, head over to the paddle table, rent your paddle $3 or 2 for $5. When you rent your paddle(s), a poker chip matching your paddle number will go into a draw container used for drawing winning raffle numbers throughout the evening.
Food and drinks can be ordered at the restaurant. No outside food permitted. When the auction begins, each item will be presented and raffled, one by one. You’ll use your quarters and paddles for a chance to win. The number of quarters does not go up, but rather you “bid” the requested number of quarters (typically 2-4) on the item for a chance to win that item! The retail value of items is from $20 to $100.
Once you deposit the required number of quarters per paddle you’ll raise your paddle in the air. The quarters are dropped into small buckets on the table and collected. We will begin drawing numbers from the chips matching the rented paddles. If your number is called and you had put your quarters in, you’re the winner! If the number called didn’t participate, we continue to pull until a number is called for someone who has bid and has their paddle in the air. Then we move on to the next auction item.
Typically, there are 2 raffle rounds with a break between the 2 rounds, so you can make sure you’ve registered for the door prizes, shop & grab more refreshments. 2 auction rounds, a door prize round, and a drawing for the 50/50 winner.
This is a rain or shine event. Severe weather would cancel any outdoor vendors, if any. Vending fee is $25. Includes table and chair. Please email the event coordinator at or message our Facebook page.

This was a fun way to raise money! Get a numbered paddle, put in your quarters for the auction item, raise your paddle and if your number is called you win! 



We have done a few block parties but this is our most recent. So much going on here! Had vendors raffling items, Tag's Whiskey Bent BBQ, DJ E-Z (our very own DJ), truck pulls, Mr. Mylanta in the dunk tank, the Twin Peaks girls, crafts, The Department of Forestry with Smokey Bear and the fire department with the truck teaching the children how to spray the hose! 



We loaded the Big 10 in Cape Coral for this tournament! Cash payouts and a 50/50! 

Lifted and Lowered Showdown


This truck, bike and car show was BIG! We had live music, plenty of vendors, a lot of trophies and some of the best vehicles around!

Salute to the Brave - Hero Project Reveal


Each year we have an event dedicated to our Veterans and First Responders to reveal the build and present it to the recipient.

Truck Pulls


This yearly truck pull event brings pullers from all over the United States! We also have vendors on site with food and your favorite beverage. 

Poker Run


This was another fun way to raise money! We had 5 stops to draw a card for your hand. At the last stop the best hand got a prize. We also had raffles and live entertainment as well as food and drink specials. We had one poker run in Cape Coral and one in Fort Myers.

ATV Fury


ATV and UTV obstacle course race and timed drags was a lot of fun in the mud! We ran 2 of these events due to popular demand of 1/2 mile obstacle course and 300 ft timed drag races!  

Appreciation Party


We love to show our sponsors and volunteers how much we appreciate all they do to make the Hero Project a success! BBQ was provided by Whiskey Bent BBQ. We had a fun day with wonderful people!
